  • EFFORTLESS MOUNTING SWIVEL BRACKETSversatility is in its design; your speakers can be mounted in a matter of seconds in any open space and provide you with a 120 degree range of High Fidelity Sound.
  • INTELLIGENT CROSSOVER: In order to optimize the quality of music, we have added a high-end crossover developed by Moukey inside the speakers, so that three different audios of high, middle and low are sent to the corresponding speaker unit for interpretation.
  • THREE-WAY FREQUENCY: The outdoor speaker is composed of 4+1.5+1.5 three speakers, responsible for deducing every detail of the 100-20000Hz frequency band. The high frequency is bright but not harsh, and the details are well processed; the middle frequency highlights the human voice and restores the real voice of the singer; the low frequency part is strong and powerful, and full of shock.
